I do think Columbia used the 3M system, which would have enabled this, but if they went through a phase of mixing to 2-track and recording right to the Sony 1600/1630 system, it would not have been possible. I'm not sure if Columbia went from 3M to Sony or Mitsubishi multitrack digital. I have never heard that Kazdin story so do not know its veracity. >> >>RCA appears to have been comfortable mixing to 2-channel at the sessions. They used the Soundstream system and then I think a Sony 1600 varient. They may have used multitrack digital, too, at some points. It's possible they used all 4 tracks on the Soundstream and thus mixed to "stems" and mixed the final 2-channel product in the studio. Hopefully Jon Samuels will chime in on this topic. >> >>-- Tom Fine >> >>----- Original Message ----- From: "DAVID BURNHAM" <[log in to unmask]> >>To: <[log in to unmask]> >>Sent: Wednesday, October 10, 2012 11:12 AM >>Subject: [ARSCLIST] >> >> >>I remember hearing a story in the early '80s about Andrew Kazdin getting in trouble at Columbia because he recorded some significant classical projects in analog when the company had already switched to digital. He apparently felt that the analog recordings were still superior and that digital wasn't up to speed yet. His bosses felt that he had wasted the whole sessions. Since we can now enjoy the benefits of analog master tapes on SACDs compared to regular CDs, perhaps he wasn't too far wrong, however I don't understand why he wouldn't have recorded in both formats. This was done with Glenn Gould's 1981 Goldberg Variations and when a new mastering was done in, (I think), the '90s, they used the analog master rather than the digital. >> >>db >> >> >> >>> ________________________________ >>> From: Steven Smolian <[log in to unmask]> >>> To: [log in to unmask] >>> Sent: Tuesday, October 9, 2012 11:51:26 AM >>> Subject: [ARSCLIST] >>> >>> Does anyone know in what year RCA and Columbia were recording mostly in >>> digital?
